I would love to meet you at the Brown Bag Market!

12:55 AM

The first time has come.

First of all, I would like to say how much I deeply miss the blogging world! I really, really miss all of you and your blogs (which I haven't visited yet, T-T). Lately, I haven't been consistent in writing my entries because I'm not like other bloggers who can multi-task very well. I decided to take a break and do other things first.

You all know that my online shop, F-STOP (Fashion Stop) is participating in my first-ever bazaar of some sort. But more than being busy with the preparations, I've spent most of my time working part-time just so I could raise the money as capital for this endeavor (I lost my wallet with a lot of money in it last Fashion Week) and to save up because I've been thinking about moving out the house to try my hand at being independent. Lately, I've been doing a lot of thinking, a lot of reflecting and I'm still in the process.

If there's a phase that I'm in right now, I think my biggest quandary is being lost. I'm not sure of what I'll do with my life and lately I've lost all my passion for the things I want to do. I've been so uninspired, lacking the drive to actually do anything significant. I want to be on the right track and I've been praying really hard to ask the Lord to help me get back on my feet.

Anyway, the Brown Bag Market opens tomorrow!!!

I'm half excited, half anxious. I'm not sure if people will like my collection, if I'll sell anything at all or if I'll earn something for this - effect of the first time jitter I guess. Despite all this over thinking, I can't wait to meet all the people, all my clients, and all the bloggers and shop owners who will be at the event. So if you are from Metro Manila, please, please do drop by the Brown Bag Market at The Collective, 7274 Malugay St. Makati City from 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM tomorrow (Saturday), November 20, 2010!
